Welcome to my web gallery. It gives a flavour of my nature photography work in a diary format. This blog will be updated regularly with new pictures. All photos are taken 'in the wild', with love and respect for nature.

Barn Owl I
The evening before Christmas Eve I was sitting in a barn. It was scary. Outside the deserted cowshed a wind with gale force was blowing, and inside I saw this dimly lit, spooky, almost surrealistic scene with a Barn Owl (Tyto alba/Kerkuil) as the protagonist. For the 1st photo I fired a flash (actually 2); the 2nd photo was made with a LED torch. Which one do you prefer?
* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 300mm/f4; ISO-400, f8, 1/60s; tripod ; flash.
* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 300mm/f4; ISO-1600, f4, 1/10s; tripod; lit by LED torch.
Nature photography is my passion! The diversity of nature keeps inspiring me. I always look for opportunities to capture the beauty of the world we live in.
I am 52 years old, happily married to Judith.
My photos are marketed for commercial use by Nature In Stock, a brand new Dutch stock agency. You can book me for custom-made presentations. Also large high-quality prints or an exclusive canvas of my work can be ordered.
